Author's comments and explanations:
Conquest of the Crystal Palace is a teriffic but often sadly overlooked NES game. I've made a vid that completes it in 17:10 (roughly) and never gets hit. There's room for improvement (this is my first attempt at making such a video) but I think it's pretty good. Made without slowdown, just lots of rerecording.

It was tough not getting hit, and I could have gone faster allowing hits, but it looks better this way IMO. The video is much cooler if you keep in mind that the snowflakes in stages 2 and 5 will hurt you if they touch you.

If you like the video, please credit me as "tim333". If you don't, tips on how to improve would be very helpful if you can spare the time. Thanks a lot. I will probably work on an improved version of this either way.

Phil: What is that? Are you working for Microsoft? We don't want explicit publicity here. Btw is it me or there's a lot of errors in your videos?
Bisqwit: The MSN advertisement came from the submission email. This was converted from my email inbox. However Phil's other question demands an answer.

tim333: Right; clearly this site is out of my league. My video is better than anyone actually playing the game could actually do, but after reading discussions about "shaving off frames" I've realized that isn't quite good enough. I'll save my submission from a flaming death on the poll by cancelling it now.
